The Michel family have been cultivating their passion for tradition and the Chablis terroir since 1850. In the mid-20th century, the family decided to stop making wine in wooden barrels, preferring to create clean, pure, and precise Chablis without adding artificial woody flavors. Through this philosophy, combined with the limited yields inspired by organic wine-growing techniques, the domaine has developed a worldwide reputation for fine winemaking in stainless steel tanks. A firmly-rooted sense of excellence is passed down from generation to generation. Louis Michel & Fils has always been a family business and is managed today by Guillaume Gicqueau-Michel, who takes great pride in perpetuating the domaine’s ethos.
